The Glenelg Hopkins CMA is responsible for finding out how far flood waters are likely to extend and how high they are likely to rise. This is done via Flood investigations and projects. Flood investigations are the first step in a journey toward understanding the nature and risk of flooding in particular areas of the catchment. The information from flood investigations enable communities to minimise the impacts of flood events through actions such as establishment of flood warning systems, land use planning that recognises flood risk, and implementation of adaptation and mitigation measures.
